Conceptually, agriculture in New Guinea was traditionally based on
the vegetative propagation of plants including trees, shrubs,
grasses and herbs. Contemporary (and past) New Guinean practices
are hard to categorise using terminology derived from the
investigation of agriculture elsewhere in the world, as such, the
investigation of prehistoric agriculture in New Guinea requires new
concepts that are not based on traditional genotype and phenotype
(domestication-based) interpretations, or on standard
manifestations of agriculture. This book will, for the first time,
bring together a range of multi-disciplinary evidence to argue for
the independent emergence of agriculture in the Highlands of New
Guinea during the early Holocene. Multiple lines of evidence will
be drawn from published and unpublished work of previous
researchers and from the results of recent and ongoing
multi-disciplinary research undertaken at Kuk.
